losing the election to president obama. conservative base of the republican party is not happy with this initial deal on the fiscal cliff. so they're looking for republicans to plant flags. now taxes and spending has nothing to do with chuck hagel except for gloria's point about a downsizing at the pentagon. chuck hagel has been on the record saying it's too bloated. while it's not connected to some of the other games of political chess in washington, in some ways everything is connected. >> the white house makes the calculation that if republicans are going to oppose chuck hagel because he ended up being opposed to the war in iraq, that's a fight the white house is happy to have. more than half of the public is opposed -- was opposed to the war in iraq, too, in the end. this is something that they feel they can do. they wouldn't have nominated him, wolf, if they didn't think he would get confirm but it's a political fight that they shouldn't shy away from. >> i'll bring jim acosta in this conversation in a moment. brianna keilar is standing over at the white house. john, despi

who come out in midterm elections because midterm elections, unlike presidential elections, you tend to get people from the far right and the far left who come out and vote. and so these democrats have to decide whether those gun owners would be with them on a certain number of issues so they could still get re-elected and still do some kind of gun control, wolf. >> and remember the price they paid for this during the clinton administration. >> right. they do want to do gun control but they have to find out what is realistic and what's not and that assault weapons ban is right there smack in the middle of everything. >> thanks very much, gloria. >>> more than half a million people are fleeing syria's civil war and now winter is compounding the misery for many refugees. >>> plus, details from this spectacular winter phenomena. impact life expectancy in the u.s., real estate in hong kong, and the optics industry in germany? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t

election which republicans took control of the congress. and democrats are still spooked by the fact that in a lot of red and purple districts, wolf, they lost because of the crime bill. you remember the crime bill with bill clinton, included in the crime bill was the ban on assault weapons. and so for the last two decades, the democrats have been very reluctant to touch this issue because they know it's going to hurt them, particularly with gun owners who can be very intense and very motivated to come out to vote in midterm elections in particular which we're heading into. >> but public opinion may be evolving now. i'll put up on the screen, a recent poll that we took after the newtown, connecticut massacre. restrictions on guns, 13% say there should be no restricts. 70% say there should be some restrictions. 15% said make all guns illegal. 70% some restrictions which presumably is what the president is going to be calling for seems to suggest this is the time to do something. >> it does. you look at the aggregate numbers. if you're a politician you say, that's great. let's change t
